Usher's Ex-Wife

His Sympathy for

My Dead Son is 'Bogus'

8/2/2012 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Usher didn't care about his ex-wife's dead son ... blew off his funeral ... and is only PRETENDING to be affected by the tragedy to court sympathy from the media and his fans ... this according to the singer's ex-wife.

Tameka Raymond's lawyer has filed new documents in the couple's bitter child custody war ... slamming Usher ... who asked the court to delay the next hearing in light of the death of Tameka's son, Kile, who was killed in a jet ski accident.

In his request, Usher claims he's worried the hearing would cause "unnecessary stress and strain" for both himself, Tameka and their two minor children "in the immediate wake of this tragedy."

Usher also claims Tameka would get an unfair advantage in the hearing because the court would not want to rule against a woman who is still grieving the death of her son.  Usher fears he could lose custody of the children and believes it would be unfair to him. 

But in docs of her own ... Tameka's lawyer claims Usher is full of crap ... insisting U's claims of suffering "stress and strain" are "BOGUS."

In fact, she claims Usher didn't care about her son at all in his final days -- even though Usher regarded him as a son back when they were married.

"[Usher] visited Kile in the hospital only once" during his 15 days on life support ... Tameka claims.

She also claims she had begged Usher to tweet a message about her son, "Please pray for Kile" ... but he refused. Instead, Tameka claims, Usher's next tweet was a photo of his own breakfast with the caption, "Breakfast of Champions."

In her docs, Tameka claims Usher's attempt to postpone the hearing is "simply a transparent sham" ... and asks the judge to DENY Usher's request and require him to appear at the next scheduled hearing, set for August 13.

She also claims resolving the custody battle is the only way for her to heal and move forward with her life.

Tameka’s class is “Bogus.” This cougar imposed her life into Usher’s as his manager and got security on her future endeavors by giving him a son and now somehow he is obligated to support her deeds before he even met her. Usher is a pretty decent guy. He needs to move on and stay involved with his children as much as he can without dealing with this aging gold digger.

Starting a relationship while being married to another never works out right. Where is the biological dad? But Usher is just as responsible for that decision. If she was divorced for some time and they met, well that's differnt, but still in the marriage with another and then dating another man is adultery, and that leads to disaster.

Where is Tameka’s son’s real father? He isn’t even bothering to fake it. No comments from Tameka about him.

She makes it hard for anyone to feel sorry for her. She is the prototype for what a bitch is. He can feel sympathy without burying himself with the blues. What, is he supposed to put his life on hold because her child died. He can be really broken up over the death but her evil ass makes him not want to be around her. I have sympathy for her losing her son but at the same time, F her and the broom she rode in on.

I really feel for them for the loss of such a young man....but Tameka is a mental case! Usher should do whatever it takes to get this unstable woman out of his life.

Wow, mean, nasty and just low. I understand that she is suffering terribly now, but to attack the man that way is not right. I just don't know, I am not mad at her, she is grieving.... but why say that?

First of all Usher is NOT the child's biological father and with all of her shena****n's who KNOWS what happened in that one visit that he didn't go again. Maybe next time Usher will listen to Momma... She told you to stay away from that gold diggin' w*ore!

Well seasoned    

Since I'm close to Ms. Tameka's age I'm going to shed some light to this dilemma. She married a dude younger than herself (oh how we cougars love the young dudes) she don't want to let go. She knew she wouldn't be able to keep him for long so had them babies quick to get a hold of him and keep drama going. The real truth is she needs to grow up stop holding those babies over his head and that freaking custody battle SHARE the kids Tameka be an adult your old enough to know better! What her dumb ass is not realizing is is she keep trying to bring his name down in public that cuts her money down what she can get now a smart bitch would keep her **** private where it's suppose to be and sit back and get the money! It don't take millions to take care of those kids like she trying to get kids need love and BOTH their parents and that's on the real. Anybody notice they are divorced but she refused to change her name back? She still holding on to what will never be she will always be known as the old bitch! I'm not normally so rude but I didn't lie I kept it real from one cougar to another Tameka what your're doing is not a great look grow up gurl keep you **** private we shouldn't be all in your business
